Owning Department/School: Department of Chemistry
Credits: 3      [equivalent to 6 CATS credits]
Notional Study Hours: 60
Level: Honours (FHEQ level 6)
Period:
Academic Year
Assessment Summary: EX 100%
Supplementary Assessment:
Like-for-like reassessment (where allowed by programme regulations)
Requisites: In taking this module you cannot take CH30217
Aims: To revise key aspects of level 4 and 5 material which is fundamental to a chemistry programme.

Learning Outcomes: After studying the Unit, students should be able to:
* Demonstrate knowledge of key aspects of all areas of fundamental chemistry expected of a BSc graduate chemist
* Demonstrate an ability to solve problems across the discipline boundaries within chemistry.

Skills: Independent working (F), Data Analysis (F, A), Problem solving (F, A), Group working (F).

Content: Key aspects of all three branches of chemistry (inorganic, organic, physical) from Years 1 and 2 of the course will be revised through independent study augmented by a VLE site containing supporting information, directed reading and self-assessment problems in order to prepare students for an overarching, synoptic exam of the core chemistry programme up to Level 5.

Programme availability:
NB. Postgraduate programme information will be added when the postgraduate catalogues are published in August 2021
